Walk for Animals
Last weekend’s Walk for Animals event was a huge success. The Animal Humane Society says it has exceeded its goal of $1 million, with the help of thousands of donors and a WCCO-TV phone bank.
Today’s weather gave a lot of Minnesotans a great reason to get outside and help a good cause. Dogs, cats and even a few reptiles took their owners on a two-and-a half mile walk in Golden Valley.
Carrie Libera from the Animal Humane Society came to the WCCO studios with Sugar Mama, a 5-year-old Pomeranian with a whole lot of personality.
All day Thursday, WCCO raised awareness and money for a great cause. The Animal Humane Society cares for animals in need at its five metro area shelters.
Next Saturday is the “Get Your Wag On” Walk for Animals for the Animal Humane Society. One little girl chose a unique way to raise money for it Sunday.
The 41st annual Walk For Animals — the biggest fundraising event for the Animal Humane Society — is coming up soon.
It is fundraising run, walk and ride season. In May alone there’s the Walk for Animals, the Walk for Bladder Cancer, Walk MS, the Huntingson’s Disease Hope Walk, the Autism 5K, the MN AIDS Walk – all are part of the 100 plus walks and runs that have permits to use Minneapolis Parks in 2012.
